Ever-Bloom Tournament

Date: 
Saturday, May 30, 2009 - 5:00am to 1:00pm
Location: 
Lake Evergreen

The Strike King Ever-Bloom Tournament Trail completed the last event Saturday and the conditions were perfect. Warm temps, light winds, an earlier start time, 5:00 am and 15 boats looking for both spawning and post spawn bass.

2008 Team of the Year Kenny Petersen and Fred Myers had a great day with 5 bass weighing 13.38 pounds to take the victory. Their day started out tough as they reported losing 5 keepers before 8:30 am. They fished mid lake areas and caught their fish on a Mr. P, a chatterbiat designed and made by Petersen, a Zoom Horny Toad and a Reaction Innovations Sweet Beaver. Great job again guys. They are leading the AOY race again boys. Time to get after them.

In second place was Jamie Maisenbacher and Brad Norris with 4 bass weighing 9.46 pounds. They fished the creek and flipped wood.

In third place was Bryan Estes and Dusty Whitacre with two bass but one mule weighing 5.85 pounds that they had seen earlier in the day and enticed to bite after 12 pm.

In 4th place were Dave Norris and Greg Bayles with three fish weighing 6.68 pounds. They again reported losing several big fish that would have pushed them to the top. Time for some new hooks guys?

The next three tournaments will begin at 5 am. This is a new start time and accommodates hotter temperatures and fish care. We will again fish until 1 pm. The next tournament is on Lake Bloomington June 13th.

There was a total of 25 fish brought to the scales that weighed 64.73 pounds.

Thanks to all who fished.
